Top Ten Tuesday: Because I Said So

Top Ten Tuesday: Because I Said So

Posted October 11, 2016 / 67 Comments

Hello friends! This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is yet another one that caused me some consternation for a while.  We’re supposed to be talking about books we’ve read because someone recommended them to us. But… see… these days I pretty much only read books that people have asked […]

  Hello ladies and lords! After this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post on Books Set Outside the U.S. – in which I purposely left out England too – a couple of my dear reading friends still bemoaned England’s absence.  I am nothing if not accommodating, but it really needed its […]

Swooniest Heroes (a conversation with Pepper Basham)

Heroes.

Just the word brings about images of tall, strong, and swoony men emerging into a story with enough testosterone to encourage a primal growl from the purist of prudes. Okay, so some heroes might encourage more of a quiet sigh as their tenderness, touch of tease, and/or quiet strength wrap around your heart like a constant hug…from nice strong arms.

A couple of weeks ago, I brought you a new list each day of the best books I read in 2015. This week will be similar except I will be talking about the books I’m most anticipating for the first half of 2016.

Let’s kick off the week with the contemporary genre!

It’s that time of year when everyone is making lists and checking them twice. Some are finding out who has been naughty and who has been nice. Some are making sure those in their circles of gifting know what they want for Christmas.

Here at Reading Is My SuperPower, I’m making lists too! Every day this week will feature the best books I read in 2015 from different genres.

Today’s focus is contemporary fiction.

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is “New-to-me Favorite Authors I Read for the First Time in 2015”. The great thing about starting a book blog this year is that I have been introduced to books by so many wonderful authors I hadn’t read before now! Narrowing down to 10 this week is difficult, so for brevity’s sake I didn’t include debut authors from 2015 in this list.
